Re: Re: Price Controls

An e-mail:

I have no particular interest in controls on how much credit card companies charge retailers, but I imagine quite a few Republican voters who consider themselves conservative would advocate such controls on interest charged to customers. These include McCain goo-goos and Huckabee populists – large segments of the coalition. I do not know if you all at NRO have seen the latest Pew Research Typology analysis, but the right is not as defined by Norquistian ideals as your site seems to assume.

My point is: We can and should say, “hey, this isn’t conservative” and often if and when necessary — this seems clearly one of those times. If that’s a question for some who consider themselves conservatives, it’s a fight worth having, for the sake of the future of the movement.
